The Tricks to Fall Treats

Fall festivities are tons of fun, but with all of the chocolate and sugary goodness we like to indulge in, it might be tempting to give in to those big puppy eyes that desperately want whatever yummy treat you are having, even if it isn’t good for them. Stay strong in the face of profound cuteness. 

Some things that your pet sees as irresistible might actually make them sick. The trick is to familiarize yourself with what kinds of treats you can share with your best friend, and watch closely to avoid them sneaking into things that aren’t safe for them.

Foods to Avoid:

  • Apple Seeds
  • Alcohol
  • Cherry Pits
  • Candy – particularly sweets that contain xylitol and chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Garlic
  • Grapes
  • Gum
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Onions
  • Raisins
  • Salt
  • Tea
  • Tomatoes
  • Walnuts
  • Yeast Dough

If you think you might give in to those big soulful eyes, opt for safe, healthy treats for your pets instead. Pet stores have some great seasonal and festive treats and toys this time of year. Check our our pumpkin treats blog for delicious recipes for your dog or cat. Visit somewhere like Bark Avenue in Colleyville for something special or visit our homemade treats blog for some treats you can make yourself. 

If you suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 immediately.

We wish everyone a safe and Happy Howl-o-ween!
